Child Care Access Means Parents in School (CCAMPIS) Program

The CCAMPIS Program is authorized by the Higher Education Act and administered by the U.S. Department of Education. The goal of CCAMPIS is to increase access to post-secondary education for low-income parents by providing quality, affordable and accessible child care services while they further their education.

UC San Diego’s Early Care and Education CCAMPIS Program is in the second year of its four-year grant cycle (2014-2018) and will contribute nearly $987,000 (over four years) to support the campus’ student parents and child care center.

Eligibility

To qualify for the CCAMPIS Program:

  • Undergraduate students must be receiving a PELL Grant or be PELL Grant eligible based on the FAFSA Application. A FAFSA must be completed and on file with the UC San Diego Financial Aid Office.
  • Graduate/Professional and International students enrolled full time at UC San Diego may be eligible to receive CCAMPIS assistance pending verification of eligibility and Expected Family Contribution (EFC).
  • Child care services must be at the UC San Diego Early Childhood Education Center (ECEC) or Mesa Child Development Center (MCDC).

Application

Applicants must complete a CCAMPIS Eligibility Application (PDF) during the quarter prior to the quarter in which you wish to receive funding. A renewal application must be completed each September following enrollment.

Fax the completed application to (858) 246-0921 or email it to Desiree Ferreria.

Waiting List

Submitting your application places your child on the waiting list. When a child leaves the CCAMPIS program, a child from the CCAMPIS waiting list will be admitted by priority.

Priority

Families with the lowest Expected Family Contribution (EFC) are admitted first. When two families have the same EFC, families with the earlier application date will be admitted first. UC San Diego student parents who are active military or veterans also receive enrollment priority.
